??? String Quilts - Spider Web?
I have alot of little pieces and "strings" of various sizes, especially from the paper piecing I am doing. In one of my books, there is a spider web quilt with directions - it appears to be PP in a triangle shape (8 units) on paper or muslin. Am I understanding this correctly? Isn't someone here doing a spider web quilt?
I've done some reading on the net about string quilts, but I want to make sure I understand the concept. Please correct me if I'm wrong or am missing something.
You use various widths of strips, length to cover area of a foundation (paper, muslin) sewn like in a PP method kinda willy - nilly across because the strips may be wider at one end. Trim in the desired shape and join units together.
Scrappier the better. Is this it?
Is this a good way to use up these skinny strips I can't seem to throw away?
What is the narrowest strip you use?
Do you always need to use a foundation or paper? What do you use?
Alot of questions, I know-I appreciate your answers and advice.
